Exclamation Sticky Thread Sticky: Full Body vs. Split Routines - Which to Choose?

Sticky Thread Sticky: Beginner Powerbuilding Routine

I was asked about this by someone else, so I thought I'd share. I’m not a professional trainer, and although I do have a background in exercise physiology I have never worked in the field nor been up to date with it for the past 8 years. So you can do this if you wish, but if you get busted up, not...

Sticky Thread Sticky: "Fierce 5" Novice Routine

FIERCE 5 I decided to design "Fierce 5" because I wasn't completely satisfied with any of the other novice programs that are so popular. In my opinion they all had a flaw or two (slow progression, high volume, low enough volume people lose interest and most of them lack what I’d consider proper...

training 5 days a week vs 3 days

Is there any benefit to training 3 days a week? I met a guy who was pretty big and he only goes 3 days when he trains. I suppose if you train for two hours it could be the same thing.

Can I do cardio before and after a workout?

Is it bad if I run before and after lifting? My gym is about 2 miles away and I usually bike there, but I've been considering running there, lifting for 30-45 minutes, and then running back home. I wasn't sure if that's too much cardio?
